a beautiful, fun and memorable cultural experience - Jul 4 - Jul 11, 2019
My friend and I do not normally take planned tours when we travel, but we were thrilled with this experience in Morocco with kimkim and Morocco Off the Beaten Path. First of all, Evan made our planning easy; neither of us had time to really plan this trip and Evan was very accessible and made the planning process stress free. He answered our questions and met up with our interests and budget.
From the beginning of our time in Morrocco to the time we returned to the Casablanca airport, our Tour Guide Issmail was welcoming, friendly and responsive. He gave us context to what we saw and experienced, made sure we were at ease and safe and was always responsive to what we asked for (i.e. stops, information).
All of our riads (hotels) were beautifully decorated and interesting. Our favorite was the palatial riad at Fez and the rustic one in the Atlas Mountains.
We enjoyed our tours around Fez and Marrakech. Yassine of Morroco Off the Beaten Track joined us in Fez and he added to our experience. In Marrakech, we learned a lot from our tour guide.
Overall, our trip was a beautiful, fun and memorable cultural experience - just what we were hoping for. And, we hope to return with a bit more time to spend at the seaside and in the Sahara.
